Today Governor JB Pritzker issued his annual State of the State Address before a joint session of the House and Senate. Following the speech, State Representative Grant Wehrli (R-Naperville) issued the following statement:
“I was pleased to hear the Governor express support for a few of the ethics reforms pushed by House Republicans, but his words need to be followed by decisive action. The dark cloud hanging over State government will only dissipate if the legislature takes bold action.
“I will be pushing for prompt consideration of substantive measures that will help address corruption and rid our state of bad actors. The culture of corruption only ends when we hold one another to a higher standard.”
